Winter 2018 term events 11x17.jpg

Ongoing at the Center

As a display of intentional interfaith expression, the Center for Spiritual and Religious Life is home to a number of programs that allow visitors to find or express spirituality in a number of ways. A visitor to the center will not find that faith or religion becomes an obligation as they enter the space, but rather will find both traditional and contemporary ways to express the faith they already hold, or find a new unique expression of their spirituality. 

Ongoing at the center there are a number of options a visitor will find no matter the season or academic term.  Continue exploring here.

Learning and Engaging

The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life regularly attempts to connect the Lawrence University community with a variety of options for expression of faith.  As well as opportunities to learn new information, there are special times with guest speakers, alumni opportunities, retreats, Intersections, or conferences that a visitor can be a part of in expression of faith and spirituality.  Continue exploring here. 

New this Term

With new ideas continuously emerging in spirituality and/or religion, mindfulness and intentional spirituality can be as dynamic as the people who communicate its meaning.  As a visitor to the Center, at times you may find a new idea practiced in a traditional way, or a steadfast idea that has found a new form and a new audience.  We welcome you to visit this page with earnest and discover something new for yourself.

Worship

There are many forms and practices for worship. Days of the week vary, styles and practices vary, belief systems vary, and the spiritually minded individual occasionally needs clarification on where to find a house of worship or the best place to express their faith.  Or, perhaps you have a curiosity about a particular tradition but don't know where to begin?  For specific clarification and worship information, continue exploring here.

Body and Spirit

Spirituality can be more than just going to a particular place on a particular day to express a particular belief.  It is found in the everyday actions of our lives and in the course of choices that we make for ourselves.  How we listen and how we move help determine the pathways that we find ourselves on.  The mind and body link to spirituality and/or religion has a long history of intertwined connection.  Continue exploring here.

Special at the Center

An artist or scholar in residence is a gift that the Center for SRL enjoys sharing with the Lawrence community.  A distinguished  alumni speaker or author of note may be featured. Here we can engross ourselves in a chosen special program as we allow this safe space to embody a larger identity of spirituality for a smaller amount of time.  Continue exploring here.
